All Vintages of this wine
The Trimbach Family introduces its cuvée Pinot Gris Sélection de Grains Nobles vintage 2005. This is a racy wine of a commendable vintage. It has a bright straw-coloured robe. On the nose, it is very elegant and unveils papaya, peach and lemon notes; the whole is built-up by mineral and woody accents. On the mouth, this Sélection Grains Nobles 2005 is fresh and mouthwatering, with small and quaffering honeyed notes yet well balanced by a bold acidity. The finish is spicy and persistant.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Picked out ultra-selectively from all of their Pinot Gris vineyards, the Trimbach 2005 Pinot Gris Selection de Grains Nobles displays high-toned, botrytis-engendered aromas of honey, brown spices, peach preserves, and white truffle. Remarkably creamy and honeyed, with spice and truffle-infused peach preserves and tangerine liqueur, yet preserving (as have all of these best 2005s) a luscious core of fresh fruit, rich and viscous, let light on its feet and crystal clear. Butterscotch and toasted hazelnut, join the richly diverse choir here for a long, serene finish. Pierre Trimbach says the quality of material and course of fermentation here were so picture-perfect that he added only a very small dosage of sulfur to finish the wine. While there would be no need to defer the pleasure of this wine's company - provided the winery agreed to release it! - it will no doubt improve for at least two decades.
